Request from the house of [achoo!]

You might have already guessed it but I will go ahead and say it anyway: our whole household is sick.  I actually am less sick than Joe and Jack, but that’s not saying a whole lot.  I think the biggest difference is that I complain less about feeling like crap (I’m sure you know the drill – husband and kid put a moratorium on all normal activities while ill and moan from the couch, whereas mom continues doing dishes, laundry, grocery shopping, etc. to keep the house from falling into total disrepair and then gets the cold worse after everyone else has healed).

Since this cold has sucked away my brain power and energy, I’m asking for your help.  If there have been any questions you’ve wanted to ask, any topics you want more details about, or any other suggestions for blog topics for me, please share in the comments!  (If you want to throw out some random ideas, that’s okay, too!)

  1. Oh yes, I know this. Hubby lies in bed acting like death and Mommy is just as sick but the children still need fed, and diapered. Hope everyone is feeling better soon!

  2. Get well soon! And try to get rest as much as you can. I know this is difficiult with a sick husband and toddler, especially the husband!

  3. Oh no! Hope you get feeling better soon!

  4. I have a request!! 🙂
    When you feel better… What are your suggestions on looking for a daycare?
    My friend has a 16 month old and is starting to look and is getting frustrated because she’s not sure of if she is seeing is what it should be (did that make sense?)
    Like today, we went to one, and there was a girl they said was an assistant, but the girl looked no older than 14 and was wearing pajamas. She was in charge of putting the kids (the ‘baby’ group for kids 12-18 months) to their nap. They had just gotten done with snack and were putting kids to nap. There was milk spilt all over the tables (which they were JUST finished with snack), and it smelled like a wet sponge. No smell of sanitizer, or bleachy cleany smell… just wet sponge. Also the ‘baby’ group and the toddler group split a room down the middle and there was a wood half wall that separated the room in half. We just showed up w/o an appointment, and they had a sign that stated “All tours with appointment only” but happily showed us around…
    What are your thoughts?

  5. The Husband says:

    “I actually am less sick … ”

    I’d call that a mighty big “less,” especially considering that you’ve slept in the past few days.

  6. oh i hope the house of sick is doing better
